Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 19, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 8 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, September 19, 1970 Women's Liberation Seen As Time Bomb For Church By DAVID POLLING President of The Christian HiTiiltl Assn. 'THEY MAY BE parading down Fifth Avenue with banners and music but the real encounter for the Women's Lib- eration Movement has yet to begin. We are not rcfering to government or business but the Church. For here you have the tradition of women being com- pletely subject to the ethics, theology and authority of men. For centuries. Forever? Not if the reports we are receiving are true. Dr. Laile E. BiU'lctt recently reported her findings on the self-image of women in the church. This California sociolo- gist was quoted in the Reli- gious News Service as saying, "Up to now the situation has been that of 'Mother Church' but 'Father Image'. As any sociologist can tell you, woman have predominated in church membership, attendance, sup- port, interest and loyally, hut men have .wielded the power. "But now even die mildest, contemplative nuns arc begin- ning to sec their place in the cluu-ch in more active and pos- itive In the Roman Catholic Church in America tiiere nr about priests and nuns. As the liberation move- ment starls finding its roots in Property Will Have Less Meaning The Church Of The Future? By BOB DOUGLAS OTTAWA (CP) There are 10 persons in Ihe living room, talking about Christ. The minister is absent. He is a medical doctor and has been called to the hospital. It is the Christian church in the year 2000. Small groups, no longer meeting in large church build- ings and depending on strong lay participation, may well be the church of the future. This is largely the vision shared by four Protestant evangeb'cal leaders from dif- ferent walks of life who at- tended the recent Canadian Congress on Evangelism here. They are Robert Thompson, 56, Conservative HIP for Red Deer and one-lime mission- ary; Rev. Robert Roxburgh, 32, a Calgary Baptist minis- ter; Dr. Frank Peters, 53, president of Waterloo Lu- theran University and a Men- nonite minister; and Rev. Leslie Tan, 41, a professor at Central Baptist Seminary in Toronto. The four men share the be- lief that the church will lose its remaining nominal support CENTRAL CHURCH OF CHRIST as n ih si. s.

"In recent times the world has found it popular to lend passing support to Christian- ity, and every politcian had to invoke God's said Mr. Tarr. "In an emerging time of more honesty they won't feel obligated to do that." FAITH FOR BEATEN Christians will have power beyond their numbers as Ihey will be more outward-looking than they are today, said Dr. Peters. They will be concerned about the suffering and pain that they see around them. They will offer help and a healing faith to those that are beaten down by "depersonal- izing forces." Mr. Roxburgh said Chris- tians will be more involved in t h e community, prompting people to ask what makes them whole in a "broken world." This will be partly because they are no longer bound to church buildings and organi- zations. Dr. Peters said property will come to mean less in the future. Some groups will not wor- ship in regular church build- ings at all. And many clergymen will be unsalaried, as they will have other jobs. This is true already of Dr. Peters, who shares with three other clergymen the ministry of a Mennonite church in Pe- ,Lakeview Mennonite Brethren Church 1509-29lh Street So. Poslor: Rev.

ROLES WILL CHANGE Ministers themselves are not likely to have the same role as today. Mr. Roxburgh sees Lhe cler- gyman becoming a "minis- who trains other Christians to do many of. the tilings done now by ministers. Churches mil no longer be run by one man, but people with different abilities will do different church tasks. Mr. Thompson, who served as a teacher-missionary after years as deputy minister of education in Ethiopia, said the old concept of the missionary is rapidly disappearing. The new missionary will have an 'ordinary job. He will spread his faith as he works to help people in emerging na- tions. Speaking of the established church as it is today, Mr. Thompson said: "I have no thought of speak- ing against it. Let it die by it- self." Rev. Taitinger Re-elected At Victoria Meet VICTORIA (CP) Rev. R. W. Taitinger of Toronto was re- elected general superintendent of the Pentecostal Assemblies of Canada as the organization wound up its 27th biennial gen- eral conference here. Other officers are. Rev.

The Protestant Church has no room for chuckles at this junction. It, too is supported, attended and patched together by the efforts and energy of millions of women. Yet there only about 100 women min- isters in the ranks of ordained clergymen. No bish- ops, and very few seminary professors, are woenm. When the United Presbyter- ian Women gathered some delegates to a five-day meeting at Purdue this sum- mer, they spelled out rather :utly their convictions on abor- tion. The resolution voted called ror modification or repeal of aws that existed so that :women and physicians and pastors and other counselors may be able to exercise their ndividual best judgment for or against abortion without any egal encumbrance." The conference went on to urge that physicians who pel ormed abortions should be only to the "general aws regulating medical licen- sure and practice and not to special criminal penalties In other words, a general national bortion law and "available to all women regardless of eco- nomic status." In other areas of church life, economics will come into fo- us. The slavery salaries paid o many professional women mployed by religious institu- tions can no longer be toler- ated. Costs will go up and the church workers in hospitals, eminaries, schools and clinics rill seek a just return for their me aid effort. Young nuns in Orders expect something more ian. carfare and older nuns at He point of retirement have uddely discovered they want o travel, to attend concerts and plays and not he restricted o some mid-continent rest ome. It's happening, Women's Liberation, and most especially the Church. Declare your independence Come out from the crowd. Turn away from mate- rialism to God, and yon will find the freedom you are really looking for... freedom from human domination, ill health, poverty, injustice. You can start today by stopping in our Reading Room and borrowing the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy. It has helped many people declare their spiritual independence. CHRISTIAN SCIENCE READING ROOM Open Thurs. and Sat., except holidays.
